Migrating Forms is organized by Nellie Killian and Kevin McGarry, former directors of the New York Underground Film Festival. In October, 2008, the organization presented the world premiere of Jennifer Montgomery’s Deliver, a feminist remake of Deliverance, at BAMcinematék. The annual springtime festival presents recent experimental film and video from around the world, bringing together work by filmmakers, video artists and visual artists using film and video, and situating it in the common context of the cinema.

Stay tuned for future events in New York and elsewhere, and for news about the 2010 festival.
